This month we’re focusing on spreading kindness toward older generations, the seniors in our communities!
Seniors are a big part of our communities and are often overlooked when it comes to volunteer work and charitable giving. Many have shaped our communities into what they are today and we want to show our gratitude to them this month. Seniors are some of the most important people in our communities and they offer a lot of knowledge and experience. They see life through a different perspective and we can learn so much when we sit down, have a conversation, and get to know them.
Many seniors choose to live in a residence with others their age, either a group home or senior living community, while some seniors have health reasons for no longer living in a private home. There are also senior centers, for those who do still live in a private home, to enjoy the company of others their age. Senior centers and living communities offer activities, social events, and day-trips for their residents to enjoy. Some examples include baking cookies, dances, hikes, bike rides, movie nights, and game nights! We all know how much time and effort goes into putting on events like these; so we’re encouraging our ISP Ambassadors this month to give a helping hand toward the senior centers and senior living communities local to you! This month we’re inviting you to put together boxes or baskets filled with surprises to deliver to your local senior centers and senior living communities. While you’re there, maybe even take the time to get to know some of the seniors who live near you. You never know…you might just make a new friend! One thing’s for sure, you’ll definitely put a smile on everyone’s faces!
